Honours and Awards

I was honoured to be awarded “Photographic Artist of the Year” for two consecutive years (2014 & 2015) by the PPOC (Alberta Chapter).

 
Also, at the 2015 National Image Salon of the Professional Photographers of Canada, I was pleased to be one of seven Finalists for the prestigious 2015 PPOC ‘‘Photographic Artist of the Year’ Award. To receive this award, an entrant must have all of their submitted images accepted (more than half are routinely rejected) by a panel of judges from around the country and these images must be from at least three entirely separate categories, such as Animals, Fine Art and Pictorial. My picture Evening Perch also received much acknowledgement from the panel of judges, winning two Judges Choice Ribbons, and honourable mention for Best in Class — Pictorial. Evening Perch was also selected to be included in the 2015 PPOC Loan Collection; 40 of the top scoring images in the competition based on overall impact, technical merit, composition, and presentation. The Loan Collection represents the best of Canadian photography.
